Teacher & Practice

Teacher Team Katrin Witt_Source NOSADE

Katrin Witt

For over 10 years nomad heart Katrin stands regularly on her yoga mat. In the yoga practice, she found peace and strength from the very beginning – serenity and gratitude followed.
The desire being able to pass that on to others has initiated her doing a yoga teacher training in 2013 in India at the Ashiyana Yoga Centre and aroused her interest in yoga and holistic life approaches. Additionally it is Katrin’s heartfelt concern to integrate yoga into a normal life, to practice with fun and joy and to submit no overlying strict dogmas.
She is encouraged in each class inviting people to take a step towards the path to themselves – whether on a roof terrace over Marrakech, in the vastness of the desert or at the beachfronts of the Atlantic!

Katrin lives in Berlin and teaches Power Vinyasa Flow and Power Core Pilates.

Accommodation

Marrakech:

In Marrakech you are accommodated right in the middle of the Medina, Marrakech’s old part of the city, in a carefully chosen, familiar Riad. Cool and comfortable, beautiful and absolutely quiet though right in the center, our partner accommodation provides you with the fitting environment to dust off, relax, enjoy yourself. And of course serves us comfortably for most of the daily yoga practices – if the weather allows, on the Riad’s rooftop.
Regular accommodation happens to be in shared, spacious triple rooms (same gender) with separated beds, ensuite bathrooms & free wifi access. Single or double/twin accommodation is bookable upon request / availability and with subject to surcharges.

 

Tahannout, Riad Tigmi Nomade:

Mohamed welcomes his guests in his traditional guest house and shares the hospitality of the Berbers in his quite basic but absolutely charming, traditional place – in the middle of the nature of the beautiful High Atlas Mountains.

 

La Ferme Berbère:

Further away from the bustle of the city, you will be enjoying yourself in La ferme Berbère – an ancient olive tree farm facing the Atlas Mountains holding a delicious restaurant and its own Hammam &  Spa.


Getting to Marrakech

Marrakech holds an international Airport Marrakech Menara. Transportation from and to the airport is arranged by NOSADE once you submitted your flight details – individually according to your personal flight times.

Please note: Flights are not included in the quoted price.

About Marrakech & The High Atlas Mountains

Marrakech:

While drifting through the Medina, you admit yourself discovering treasures everywhere in any shape: Spices, perfumes, handicrafts, carpets, jewelry. Between all the small shops you will find tiny fruit and vegetable stalls where farmers offer their freshly harvested products; old carriages serving as counters for fresh delicious bread. Everything is surrounded by a bewitching smell. The whole city seems to be enchanted by the drumming and singing, by snake charmers and storytellers. Calm and coolness can only be found once entering the very narrow streets.
In Marrakech, it is easy though to feel comfortable and at home despite its strangeness and fascination – in this sea of seething life, bustling action, loud shouts and the feverish, everlasting and never ending circle of boiling life.
Indeed no other city in the world deserves the name “Pearl of the South” more than Marrakech.

The High Atlas Mountains Morocco:

High Atlas, also called the Grand Atlas Mountains (Arabic: الاطلس الكبير‎; French: Haut Atlas; Berber: ⴰⴷⵔⴰⵔ ⵏ ⴷⵔⵏ) is a mountain range in central Morocco in Northern Africa.

The High Atlas rises in the west at the Atlantic Ocean and stretches in an eastern direction to the Moroccan-Algerian border. At the Atlantic and to the southwest the range drops abruptly and makes an impressive transition to the coast and the Anti-Atlas range. To the north, in the direction of Marrakech, the range descends less abruptly.

The range includes Jbel Toubkal, which at 4,167 m is the highest in the range and lies in Toubkal National Park. The range serves as a weather system barrier in Morocco running east-west and separating the Sahara from the Mediterranean and continental zones to the north and west. In the higher elevations of the massif, snow falls regularly, allowing winter sports. Snow lasts well into late spring in the High Atlas, mostly on the northern faces of the range. On the Western High Atlas, there is Oukaïmeden, one of three main ski stations in Morocco.

The High Atlas forms the basins for a multiplicity of river systems. The majority of the year-round rivers flow to the north, providing the basis for the settlements there. A number of wadis and seasonal rivers terminate in the deserts to the south and plateaux to the east of the mountains.

The High-Atlas Mountains are inhabited by Berbers, who live from agriculture and pastoralism in the valleys. In the steppe zone of the High-Atlas, where precipitations are low, the locals created a smart technique in managing the low precipitations and the weak soil. They turn the rather semi-arid lands into fertile valleys called locally by Agdal (garden in Berber). This technique has intrigued many Western agriculturalists, in which they were impressed by the high efficiency of this agricultural system. Many scientists, particularly French scientists, make yearly expeditions to observe the community and their living system. (Source: Wikipedia)
